National and International HPC Activities and Collaborations

LRZ is involved in several regional, national and international activities. Two main european projects are being conducted across several countries in the EU; PRACE and DEISA. LRZ is also part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) in Germany and in Bayern and Munich we collaborate closely with the LMU, TUM, Max Plank Institute among others.

LRZ is part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), the alliance of the three German national supercomputing centres:
GCS provides the most powerful high-performance computing infrastructure in Europe

PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, prepares the creation of a persistent pan-European HPC service, consisting several tier-0 centres providing European researchers with access to capability computers and forming the top level of the European HPC ecosystem. PRACE is a project funded in part by the EU's 7th Framework Programme.
